Sabres a rattling

After the hooting and the hollering
when those so inclined have chosen
the brand of madness they’ll be following,
hostilities will begin.

It will not end well.

The only one that wins is the spider who spins
the biggest lie,
caught in the web we’ll be there for the taking,
making widows of wives and a mockery of those
lives we once led.
